A truly unique opportunity to see organ concert at the St. Vitus Cathedral.

About festival:

The Molzer organ, containing 4,500 pipes, offers the listener a rich, romantic sound. Since the Cathedral is used only for liturgical and touristic purposes, this festival is a unique opportunity to hear the full capacity of this instrument.
